Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Internasional Soekarno–Hatta) (IATA: CGK, ICAO: WIII), abbreviated SHIA or Cengkareng airport (hence IATA designator "CGK"), is the primary airport serving the Greater Jakarta area on the island of Java in Indonesia. Named after the first president and vice-president of Indonesia, Soekarno and Mohammad Hatta, the airport is located at Benda, Tangerang, 20 km northwest of Central Jakarta. It is the busiest, largest airport in Southeast Asia, the busiest in the southern hemisphere and one of the busiest airports in world. Together with Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport, they served over 70 million passengers of Greater Jakarta in 2017.
The airport commenced domestic operations in 1985 replacing the old over capacity Kemayoran Airport. The airport was expanded in 1991 to replace Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport for international flights, which still serves domestic charter, VIP, private flights, and re-opened as second commercial airport for domestic flights to relieve pressure over Soekarno-Hatta airport that is currently running over capacity. The airport served 66.9 million passengers in 2018, ranked as 18th busiest airport in the world by Airports Council International, and the busiest in Southeast Asia. According to air travel intelligence company OAG, the airport ranked as the 7th most connected airport in the world, and ranked first as 'megahub' airport in Asia-Pacific region as per connectivity index, ahead of Japan's Tokyo Haneda Airport and Australia's Sydney Airport. The airport ranked as the 7th most connected airport as 'megahub' in the world in 2017 again by air travel intelligence company OAG. The airport ranked as the 2nd most connected Low-Cost Megahub airport as 'megahub' in the world in 2018 by air travel intelligence company OAG.
The airport often struggles to accommodate all flights at its current limit of 81 aircraft movements per hour. Although over capacity, after a survey ACI in 2012 declared that Soekarno–Hatta International Airport is being operated safely. The two existing runways suffer from pavement and strength issues, which limits the airport's capacity to serve large aircraft. To reduce congestion and to achieve a target to handle 100 flights/hour, works for a third runway is ongoing, which is expected to open in 2019. Upgrading of existing two runways are almost completed for safe operation and to accommodate wide-bodied aircraft. The airport will be able to serve 100 million passengers annually by 2025 after completion of ongoing development work.

Used between 1928 and 1985, Kemayoran Airfield was considered unsatisfactory[when?] because it was too close to the major Halim Perdanakusuma Indonesian military airport. The civil airspace in the area became increasingly restricted, while air traffic increased rapidly, posing problems for international air traffic. In 1969, a senior communication officers meeting in Bangkok expressed these concerns.
In the early 1970s, with the help of USAID, eight potential locations were analyzed for a new international airport, namely Kemayoran, Malaka, Babakan, Jonggol, Halim, Curug, South Tangerang and North Tangerang. Finally, the North Tangerang site was chosen; it was also noted that Jonggol could be used as an alternative airfield. Meanwhile, as an interim step, the Indonesian government upgraded the Halim Perdanakusumah airfield for use for passenger services. The old Kemayoran site was closed in 1985, and the land was later used for commercial and housing purposes.
Between 1974 and 1975, a Canadian consultant/consortium, consisting of Aviation Planning Services Ltd., ACRESS International Ltd., and Searle Wilbee Rowland (SWR), won a bid for the new airport feasibility project. The feasibility study started on 20 February 1974, with a total cost of 1 million Canadian dollars. The one-year project proceeded with an Indonesian partner represented by PT Konavi. By the end of March 1975, the study revealed a plan to build three inline runways, three international terminal buildings, three domestic buildings and one building for Hajj flights. Three stores for the domestic terminals would be built between 1975 and 1981 at a cost of US$465 million and one domestic terminal including an apron from 1982–1985 at a cost of US$126 million. A new terminal project, named the Jakarta International Airport Cengkareng, began.
The airport's terminal 1 and 2 was designed by Paul Andreu, a French architect who also designed Paris–Charles de Gaulle Airport. One of the characteristics of the airport is the incorporation of the local architecture into the design, and the presence of tropical gardens between the waiting lounges. These unique characteristics earned the airport the 1995 Aga Khan Award for Architecture. The runways run northeast–southwest. There are two parallel runways, on the north and south side. The airport terminal took the plan of spanning fan, with the main entrances of terminals connected to a series of waiting and boarding pavilions via corridors. These waiting and boarding pavilions are connected to the airplanes through boarding bridges. Terminal 1 is in the southern side of the airport, while Terminal 2 and 3 are on the north side.
The airport concept is described as "garden within the airport" or "airport in the garden", as tropical decorative and flower plants fill the spaces between corridors, waiting and boarding pavilions. The boarding pavilions demonstrate local Indonesian vernacular architecture, particularly the roof, in the Javanese stepped-roof pendopo and joglo style. The interior design displays the diversity of Indonesian art and culture, with ethnic decorative elements taken from wooden carvings of Java, Bali, Sumatra, Dayak, Toraja to Papua. Another example is the railings of stairs, doors and gates, which show the kala-makara (giant head and mythical fish-elephant creature) theme typical in ancient Indonesian temples such as Borobudur. Terminal 3, however, has a different architectural style—unlike the ethnic-inspired Indonesian vernacular architecture of terminals 1 and 2, terminal 3 uses the contemporary modern style of large glass windows with metal frames and columns.
Time was needed to allocate land and also determine provincial border.[clarification needed] Authorities at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol were consulted about the airport plans, and concluded that the proposal was rather expensive and over-designed. The cost rose because of using a decentralized system. The centralized system was seen as a more suitable option. The team, however chose the latter, similar to Orly Airport, Lyon Satolas, Hannover Airport and Kansas City Airport due to its simplicity and effectiveness.
On 12 November 1976, the building project tender was won by the French Aeroport de Paris. 6 months later, the final design was agreed on by the Indonesian government and Aeroport de Paris with a fixed cost of about 22,323,203 French francs and Rp. 177,156,000 equivalent to 2,100,000 francs. The work was scheduled to take 18 months. The government appointed PT. Konavi as the local partner. The plan included 2 runways with taxiways, one access road in the east and one in the west (closed to public use) for airport services, 3 terminals capable of accommodating 3 million passengers per year, and 1 module for international flights and 2 for domestic. "An airport inside a garden" was chosen as the design idea.
On 20 May 1980, a four-year contract was signed. Sainraptet Brice, SAE, Colas together with PT. Waskita Karya were chosen to be the developers. Ir. Karno Barkah was appointed the project director, responsible for the airport's construction. On 1 December 1980, the Indonesian government signed a contract for Rp. 384.8 billion with developers. The cost structure was: Rp140,450,513,000 from the state budget, 1,223,457 francs donated by France and US$15,898,251 from the United States. The airport structure was completed exactly four years later. It was finally opened on 1 May 1985 for domestic flights, and the second circular terminal was opened exactly six years later for international operations.
|Phases of Soekarno–Hatta International Airport Project|
|Phase 1||1985||Opening of Terminal 1 with a capacity of 9 million passengers per annum||Completed|
|Phase 2||1991||Opening of Terminal 2 with a capacity of 18 million passengers per annum||Completed|
|Phase 3||2011||Construction of Terminal 3 phase 1 with a capacity of 22 million passengers per annum||Completed|
|Fully built new Freight Terminal||In progress|
|Phase 4||2017||Completion of Terminal 3 with a capacity of 43 million passengers per annum||Completed|
|Construction of Airport Railway||Completed|
|Construction of third runway||In progress|
|Fully built integrated building[clarification needed]||In Progress|
|Construction of Terminal 4||Planned|
|Phase 5||2022||Refurbishment of Terminal 1 & Terminal 2 to increase capacity to 61 million passengers per annum||In progress|
The capacity of the airport is increased from 22 million passengers per year to 62 million per year during 2014 to 2017, but the airport handled more than 63 million passengers in 2017. Therefore, plans to build 4th passenger terminal is already underway. The airport is being implementing new theme "Modern Airport With Traditional Sense" for the project. Angkasa Pura II, as the operator, designed Soekarno–Hatta Airport to have 3 passenger terminals, 1 new freight terminal (cargo village) and an 'Integrated Building' (designed to unite terminal one and two). Also, there will be an increase in apron capacity from 125 airplanes to 174 airplanes. By 2015, additional upgrades are expected to increase the airport's capacity to 75 million passengers. An airport train from Manggarai Station and a people mover for ground transportation to/from and inside the airport are also in planning.
In the first stage, Terminal 3 is expanded. Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 will be integrated with green walls[clarification needed] and the airport will have a convention hall, shopping center, hotel, playground, recreational facilities and parking area for 20,000 vehicles.
To anticipate a surge in passenger numbers, at least a ten percent increase each year, the government is preparing to build a third runway. This was planned to be completed in 2019. If the airport has 3 runways, the service capacity will rise to 623,420 movements per year and it will be able to anticipate growth at least until 2030. The expansion will use about 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) from 10 villages in the Teluk Naga and Kosambi subdistricts. Once completed, the third runway would increase Soekarno-hatta's handling capacity to 114 aircraft movements per hour from the current 81. The expansion plan has been rejected by Tangerang Municipal Government because the residents living around the airport wouldn't be able to earn income for their family. The local government offered another location such as in Balaraja, but Angkasa Pura II corporate secretary said that building a new airport would not be an easy task, as it requires a thorough study. Finally, Angkasa Pura II only use 134 hectares land and appraisal will be used for buy the land. It can be done due to new design for third runway is cross-runway between runway-1 and runway-2, instead of 3 parallel runways.
To accommodate 86 aircraft movements per hour from current 72 movements per hour, so since 2016, the airport authority is developing east cross taxiway with cost Rp 1,150 billion ($86.1 million) to connect existing runway-1 and runway-2 and predicted can be used in 2018.
The land area of the airport is 18 square kilometers (6.9 sq mi). It has two independent parallel 3,600-meter (11,800 ft) long runways connected by two cross taxiways. There are three main terminal buildings; Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. The airport has a freight terminal for domestic and international cargo.
After renovations and expansions of Terminal 3, current capacity of Soekarno–Hatta is 51 million, but the airport served 54 million passengers in 2015, making it the 18th busiest airport in the world, and the busiest airport in the Southern Hemisphere. There are nonstop flights to a large number of destinations in Asia and Australia, and several flights to Europe daily, ranking as the 17th most connected airport in the world, and the largest megahub in Asia according to OAG.
Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 are currently under renovation, which will cost Rp 3.2 trillion ($235.2 million). Renovation of Terminal 1 is scheduled for completion in June 2019, while Terminal 2 in August 2019. The revitalization project is expected to double the number of passengers of the two terminals up to 36 million a year. By late 2018 Terminal 1 will become a domestic low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT), while Terminal 2 will become an international low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) and Terminal 3 will become a full-service terminal for both domestic and international flights. The airport operator AP II has undertaken plan to build a fourth terminal at Soekarno-Hatta, which is expected to be completed by 2022.
Terminal 1 is the first terminal built, finished in 1985. It is located on the south side of the airport, across from Terminal 2. Terminal 1 has 3 sub-terminals, each equipped with 25 check-in counters, 5 baggage carousels and 7 gates. It has the capacity to handle 9 million passengers per annum.
The gates in Terminal 1 have a prefix of A, B or C. The gates are A1–A7, B1–B7 and C1–C7. In the newest masterplan, Terminal 1 will have its capacity increased to 18 million passengers per annum. Terminal 1 is used for domestic flights except for those operated by Garuda Indonesia, Sriwijaya Air, NAM Air, Indonesia AirAsia. Terminal 1A is home to Lion Air domestic flights (except to Sumatra & Bali). Terminal 1B is home to Lion Air domestic flights (only to Sumatra and Bali) and Xpress Air. Terminal 1C is home to Citilink (domestic flights) and other Indonesian domestic flights. This terminal will be converted into a domestic low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) by early 2019.
Terminal 2 is the second terminal built, completed in 1991, and is located on the west-northern side of the airport, across from Terminal 1. Like Terminal 1, it has three sub-terminals, labeled as D, E and F, each of which has seven gates and 25 check-in counters. Although some airlines were still serving international routes from terminal 2D, all international flights have been gradually moved to Terminal 3, after that Terminal 2 would cater only to umrah (minor haj) flights and will be converted into an international low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) by early 2019. Currently, Terminal 2E is home to Batik Air's domestic flights while Terminal 2F is home to Sriwijaya Air, NAM Air, Indonesia Airasia and Indonesia AirAsia X domestic flights.
The newly built Terminal 3 was opened in 2016 to handle 25 million passengers per annum, which is located on the east-northern side of the airport. The terminal has a different style than terminals 1 and 2, using an eco-friendly contemporary modern design with a traditional sense.
The former Terminal 3 was officially opened for international flights on 15 November 2011, when all Indonesia AirAsia flights started using Terminal 3 as its new base for international flights as well as domestic flights. The New Terminal 3 (known as "Terminal 3 Ultimate") was formally opened on 9 August 2016. The floor area of the new terminal covers 422,804 m2 (4,551,020 sq ft) with 10 international gates, 18 domestic gates, 112 check-in counters, 48 jet bridges and 10 bus gates. It is slated to be larger than Changi Airport Terminal 3, Singapore which is the benchmark for SHIA. There is a Tourist Information Center at Terminal 3 Ultimate to serve international tourists. At present, both the old and new Terminal 3 are connected, with new jet bridges on the left side of the old terminal.
Terminal 3 is equipped with BHS level 5 to detect bombs, an Airport Security System (ASS) which can control up to 600 CCTVs to detect faces who are available in the security register, an Intelligence Building Management System (IBMS) which can control uses of water and electricity (ecogreen), rain water system to produce clean water from rain, a recycled water system to produce toilet water from used toilet water, and illumination technology control to illuminate the terminal depending on the weather surrounding the terminal. Terminal 3 will be able to serve 60 airplanes from the current 40 airplanes.
Angkasa Pura II has undertaken a plan to build Terminal 4, which will be located on the north side of runway 1. The terminal will be located south of Terminal 3, and on the right side of Terminal 2. Terminal 4 will be built at the 4th stage. The terminal will be designed in the form of 'H' and use eco-friendly and modern design, similar to the design of Terminal 3. The terminal is expected to be operational by 2024.
The freight terminal is located on the east side of terminal 1. This terminal was used to handle cargo at the Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, both domestic and international cargo. In the newest master plan, the freight terminal will move to the west side of terminal 2 and have a larger capacity than the current terminal.
Airlines and destinations
Traffic and statistics
Jakarta–Singapore is one of the world's busiest international air routes; passenger numbers of this route is growing fast. It was the second busiest international route in Asia after Hong Kong–Taipei in 2015. Singapore Airlines alone operates more than 70 weekly flights between Jakarta & Singapore. Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta–Surabaya route is ranked ninth busiest in the world by IATA in 2016. Jakarta–Singapore and Jakarta–Kuala Lumpur routes are ranked within the top ten of world's busiest international air routes in 2018.
New traffic procedure
To ease congestion, the airport authority implemented a new traffic procedure, the 72 Improved Runway Capacity (IRC 72), to handle 72 planes per hour. This limited a plane to 30–45 minutes only for arrival and unloading of passengers, to allow other planes to use the parking space. Gradually it has been implemented and on 26 June 2014 IRC 72 has been implemented full for the period of 00:00am to 01:30am, 02:00am to 10:00am and 11:30pm to 00:00am with occupancy periods for aircraft are reduced from 110 seconds to 90 seconds of takeoff and from 65 seconds to 50 seconds for landing. The low time is from 04:00pm to 10:00pm with only maximum 32 flights/hour. By 2015, IRC 72 will become IRC 86 with the opening of the new terminal. As a comparison, London Heathrow Airport, which has 2 runways like SHIA, can handle 100 flights per hour, so the target for SHIA has been revised to 92 flights per hour by 2015. As of July 2017, maximum flight frequency at Soekarno–Hatta International Airport had been increased to 81 take-offs and landings per hour to accommodate increasing demand from aviation companies.
Terminals 1 and 2 were designed to resemble a traditional joglo Javanese construction. The approach has been emphasized by the inclusion of well-maintained gardens located near all boarding areas. Terminal 3 and other new airport buildings use an eco-friendly and modern design.
Maintenance facilities for aircraft in Soekarno–Hatta International Airport are supported by GMF AeroAsia (Garuda Maintenance Facility).

Inter-terminal shuttle service
Soekarno–Hatta International Airport provides a free shuttle bus which connects Terminals 1, 2 and 3. Airport shuttle bus can be found at arrival hall of Terminal 1A–1B–1C, on the eastern wing of arrival hall of Terminal 2F and in front of departure hall of Terminal 3
The airport is connected to Jakarta's city center via the Prof. Dr. Ir. Soedijatmo Toll Road. There is extensive car parking, including long-stay facilities, at the airport. Various taxi and shuttle services are provided by several operators.
SkyTrain (inter-terminal shuttle service)
The plan to build an airport automated people mover system to connect Terminals 1, 2, and 3, and the Airport Rail Link Station, was announced in 2013. Starting on 17 September 2017, the people mover, named SkyTrain, is officially opened to connect Terminal 3 and Terminal 2 vice versa, with a headway of 5 minutes. One set of SkyTrain can serve 2x88 passengers. It temporarily operates between 07.00–10.00, 13.00–14.00 and 17.00–19.00.
Soekarno–Hatta Airport Rail Link connects Jakarta city center with the airport. The train takes 45–55 minutes from Manggarai station at South Jakarta to SHIA station. Each train accommodates up to 272 passengers and will serve about 35,000 passengers with 122 trips a day, when fully operational. There is a 30 minutes interval between the train departures. As Manggarai station is under renovation, Sudirman Baru station is being temporarily as terminus for the city center. The airport train currently makes 42 trips daily between 3.51 a.m. and 9.51 p.m., departing from Sudirman Baru station in to SHIA, with a stop at Batuceper station. Trips from Soekarno-Hatta to Sudirman Baru runs from 6.10 a.m. to 11.10 p.m., departing every hour. The ticket price for the journey is IDR70 thousand (US$5). Passengers can only book train tickets using credit and debit cards, as well as electronic money via Railink app available for smartphones or vending machines at stations.
An express line between Halim Perdanakusuma Airport and the airport is under planning stage, to be built by an investor as a public–private partnership. The express train will take 30 minutes to connect the airports. In early 2015, government changed the fund from participation to not funding at all, so the contract for Rp 28 billion will be revised, including new rail express tariff. The construction of this line has been delayed and completion is now projected to be in 2019 at the earliest.
Accidents and incidents
- On 28 October 1997, a Trigana Air Service Fokker F-28 Fellowship 3000 passenger plane returned to land at Jakarta–Soekarno–Hatta International Airport after the aircraft experienced technical problems two minutes after takeoff. Smoke and severe heat had entered cockpit and the passenger cabin. The airplane sustained damage due to the heat.
- On 23 January 2003, a Star Air Boeing 737 touched down 500 meters (1,600 ft) past the threshold of runway 25L, a little left of the centerline, at a time of heavy rainfall with associated heavy winds. It went off the side of the runway, causing substantial damage to the aircraft's undercarriage and belly.
- 2003 Soekarno–Hatta International Airport bombing – On 27 April 2003, a bomb exploded in terminal 2, departure hall of domestic terminal. The bomb was hidden under a table of a KFC stall and exploded during lunch hours. 10 people were injured in the blast, one 17 year old teenager identified as Yuli was seriously injured. Her legs had to be amputated. Emergency services were rushed to the scene and suspected that the motive of the bombing was due to the Free Aceh Movement, a separatist movement in Aceh. This was proved by the location of the blast, which was located on the domestic passenger hall rather than on the international passenger hall.
- On 11 August 2003, a Garuda Indonesia Fokker F-28 Fellowship 3000R suffered a left main gear collapse after a flight from Surabaya.
- On 9 March 2009, a Lion Air MD-90 overran runway 25L, due to an unstable approach 100 meters (330 ft) before the runway in rainfall and strong winds, in which the aircraft touched down to the left of the centerline. Although its thrust reversers were functioning, it veered to the right, resulting in the aircraft resting 90 degrees off the runway.
- On 29 October 2018, Lion Air Flight 610, operating with a Boeing 737-MAX 8, crashed into the Java Sea 13 minutes after taking off from Soekarno–Hatta International Airport. The flight was a scheduled domestic flight to Depati Amir Airport, Pangkal Pinang, Indonesia. All 189 passengers and crews on board were killed in the crash.
In 1995, the landscaping of Soekarno–Hatta airport was awarded by Aga Khan Award for Architecture as one of the best example of integrating the terminal building pavilions, with lush tropical garden harmoniously.
Soekarno–Hatta International Airport was ranked fourth on the Skytrax World's Most Improved Airport 2014 list based on surveys of 12.85 million passengers from 110 countries. Skytrax also ranked Soekarno–Hatta International Airport as a 3-Star Airport.
